>> he had allies along the way. 7 democrats and 3 republicans joined him. senate consideration could now happen as late as saturday or sunday. while all that was happening senator chris murphy was on all in with chris hayes. he talked about the consequences of the war on iraq like the rise of isis. >> this is such a catastrophe that it is incredibly hard to figure out how this gets solved moving forward and it is a lesson for why we should never put someone in the white house who is so cavalier about the insertion of troops into the middle east. >> mitt romney said he's never going to run for president again, and chris christie might enter the fray at some point but the star ledger blasted him saying in part quote, he needs to pour himself a drink and ask himself the tough question why don't people love me and later

now, on the democratic side they have their own problem with only hillary clinton on the stage. and then you'd hear the voice of elizabeth warren offstage. i can't help but feel this would be enhanced if everybody wore a red nose. >> it seems like there is a new gop contender announcing every few days. are they making a mockery of this with so many candidates? >> i think that each individual candidate has the chance to make a mockery of all this but i think a lot of people are not amused by the political process which is going to get underway at least unfushlly with the first debate in august. >> and will a crowded field help or hurt hillary's chances? >> it's going to be a real problem for the republicans to try to come up with a candidate. right now hillary clinton is running a very cautious campaign. and so the last thing she's
going to have to worry about is being confronted by a whole bunch of people who would like to undermine her campaign. >> thanks so much and we're going to have to get you a red nose. i think you'd look better than i do with one of these. thank you, bob, and check this out. this is the red nose day dance athonwith nick cannon right now at the nbc experience store right here at 30 rock. he'll attempt to dance nonstop for 24 hours. he's already an hour ten. go nick. it's in honor of the first red nose day. what is it and where is it from? find out next.
